It was a perfect Long Island summer night. A pink sunset reflected off the calm, boat-filled water and a cool breeze rustled through the lit trees along the dock at Prime Restaurant in Huntington. Then the models arrived -- six leggy ladies in Skyfish Inc. swimsuits aboard a 72-foot yacht. The show continued as more models showed off summer styles from local boutiques Rexer-Parkes, Francine's Fashion, Veronica Rayne and Ooh La La. Here, a peek at Huntington Has Taste, an event to benefit Long Island Cares and the Harry Chapin Food Bank. (June 26, 2012) -- Nina Ruggiero
